Instructions: Title III EL Program Subgrant Budget

Consolidated Application and Reporting System data entry instructions for the 2023–24 Title III English Learner (EL) Student Program Subgrant Budget data collection form.
Data Collection Purpose

The purpose of this data collection form is for the local educational agency (LEA) to provide a proposed budget for 2023–24 English Learner (EL) Student Program Subgrant per the Title III EL Student Program requirements (Every Student Succeeds Act [ESSA], sections 3114, 3115, & 3116).

Program Information

An LEA that reported the enrollment of one or more English Learner (EL) students via the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) October 2022 data collection is eligible to apply for the 2023–24 Title III EL student program formula subgrant. Use the EL student count that was provided to the CALPADS for census day of October 5, 2022.

A calculated estimated EL student program allocation amount that is less than $10,000 does not meet the minimum program eligibility criteria for direct funding status and requires further action. To receive instructions regarding the consortium application process, please go to the California Department of Education (CDE) Title III EL Student Program Consortium Details web page.
